Background Endoscopic stenting has spread as bridge management before pancreatoduedenectomy (PD) to resolve jaundice, but its role is nowadays challenged as it is reported to increase morbidity. Although bile sampling is increasingly performed, its clinical role is unclear. The objective of the study is to assess bile colonization’s impact on outcome.

Background Identification of patients at risk of death from cancer surgery should aid in preoperative preparation. The purpose of this study is to assess and adjust the age-adjusted Charlson comorbidity index (ACCI) to identify cancer patients with increased risk of perioperative mortality. Methods We identified 156,151 patients undergoing surgery for one of the ten common cancers between 2007 and 2011 in the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database. Half of the patients were randomly ...

Abstract Background Most series analyzing outcomes of pancreaticoduodenectomy in octogenarians are limited by a small sample size. The investigators used the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database for an analysis of the impact of advanced age on outcomes after pancreatic cancer surgery. Methods The National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database from 2005 to 2010 was accessed to study the outcomes of 475 pancreaticoduodenectomies performed in p...

Objectives Pancreatic cancer is a lethal disease mostly affecting elderly people. Clinical trials on treatment contain disproportionately fewer elderly patients compared with everyday practice. This retrospective study evaluates differences in the rates of chemotherapy delivered and associated survival in different age groups. Methods Data were collected from the Cancer Information Resource Files on patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer from 1993 to 2008. Patients were divided into 3 age gro...

Adjuvant chemotherapy improves survival for patients with resected pancreatic cancer. Elderly patients are under-represented in Phase III clinical trials, and as a consequence the efficacy of adjuvant therapy in older patients with pancreatic cancer is not clear. We aimed to assess the use and efficacy of adjuvant chemotherapy in older patients with pancreatic cancer. We assessed a community cohort of 439 patients with a diagnosis of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma who underwent operative resec...

Purpose Although a pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) has been recently regarded as a safe surgical procedure at high-volume centers, the efficacy of PD for patients 80 years of age and older is controversial. The aim of this study was to evaluate the perioperative and long-term outcomes following PD in patients 80 years of age and older.

Background A pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) offers the only chance of a cure for pancreatic cancer and can be performed with low mortality and morbidity. However, little is known about outcomes of a PD in octogenarians.

Abstract Background Although mortality & morbidity for pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) have improved significantly over the last two decades, the concern for elderly undergoing PD remains. This study examines the outcome of the elderly patients who had pancreaticoduodenectomy in our institution. Methods A prospective database comprising 69 patients who underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy between 2001 and May 2008 was analyzed. Using WHO definition, elderly patient is defined as age 65 and above in th...

Background Conflicting data exist regarding the safety of pancreatic resections in elderly patients. In this study we compared early complication and mortality rates between patients younger and older than 80 years of age who underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy using a validated national database.

Background More than 60% of patients affected by pancreatic cancer are ≥ 65 years of age. Surgery represents the only potentially curative treatment for malignant pancreatic neoplasia and a useful treatment for benign diseases.

Background: Although mortality and morbidity of pancreatoduodenectomy (PD) have improved significantly over the past years, the impact of age for patients undergoing PD is still debated. This study is aimed at analyzing short- and long-term outcomes of PD in elderly patients. Methods: 124 consecutive patients who have undergone PD for pancreas neoplasms in our center between 2012 and 2017 were analyzed. Patients were divided into two groups: group I ( /=75 years). Demographic features and intrao...

Abstract Background Pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) is a standardized strategy for patients with middle and distal bile duct cancers. The aim of this study was to compare clinicopathological features of bile duct segmental resection (BDR) with PD in patients with extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. Methods Consecutive cases with extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma who underwent BDR (n=21) or PD (n=84) with achievement of R0 or R1 resection in Kobe University Hospital between January 2000 and December 2016...

Abstract Background Currently, surgical resection represents the only curative treatment for pancreatic cancer (PC), however, the majority of tumors are no longer resectable by the time of diagnosis. The aim of this study was to describe time trends and distribution of pancreaticoduodenectomies (PDs) performed for treating PC in Brazil in recent years. Methods Data were retrospectively obtained from Brazilian Health Public System (namely DATASUS) regarding hospitalizations for PC and PD in Brazi...

Abstract Background Complications frequently occur after pancreaticoduodenectomy. Patients undergoing pancreaticoduodenectomy tend to be older; age and postoperative complication may be associated. To clarify this association, we compared postoperative outcomes in patients undergoing pancreaticoduodenectomy based on age group. We aimed to determine whether we could identify an age cutoff where the incidence and cost of postoperative complications starts increasing and potentially outweigh the po...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Outcomes and recommendations regarding adjuvant therapy (AT) for stage I ampullary adenocarcinoma (AAC) are inadequately described. We sought to determine factors associated with survival and better define the impact of AT. METHODS: The NCDB was queried for stage I AAC patients undergoing resection. We evaluated variables influencing the administration of AT and affecting survival, including the receipt of AT. RESULTS: Five hundred thirty-seven patients were identified...
